for a significant period of time. it's hard to pin all of that on president obama. and the goal here, of course, with governor romney is that its everything that i can think of that has happened in this country that is negative is due to president obama. it enforces his primary club he has been trying to use against the president. he has to use it in a way that misrepresents what is going on. not only are the numbers for october good, but august and september were revised upwards. so we have a trend in employment here that is good news for the american people across the board. >> eliot: that's exactly right. 8% was the emotionally important threshold with unemployment above 8% mitt romney had an easier time, using that as a club where it has settled below 8% whether it's 7.8 7.9, it's harder for him to do that. looking at the sector where jobs were created every sector had growth even in manufacturing. >> yes, there is more growth in the service industry, health industry, but these are not high paying jobs being created. he didn't focus on that, and that was a mistake for him. what people are f

've got lots of things to do. the thing for him to do, meaning president obama, is to go to new jersey and represent the country. sean? >> sean: jamie, thank you for the report. joining me now to talk about the impact the storm may have on the presidential election, fox news political analyst juan williams and dana perino from the five. it makes me cringe. you have a tragedy like this and people are racing to politicize this. nba at nbpeople at nbc news are ridiculing mitt romney. he gave his bus early on, he was out collecting food and supplies for victims today. he's being ridiculed on nbc for that. you've got the new york "new yo" using this as an opportunity to say well, the storm proves that big government is necessary. you've got an obama e-mail during the hurricane hey, you've got a phone, get obama's back. al gore's blaming global warning and bill clinton says electing romney is worse than hurricane sandy. what's wrong with your party? >> well, you built a case, i'll say that, mr. prosecutor. i will also say that, in fact, mitt romney during the campaign said that, you know, he

a tossup. the latest pew research study says across the country obama campaign reached 11% of likely voters. only 10% for the romney campaign. look at the swing state. the romney campaign has an edge to reach 14% of likely voters, only 13 from the obama camp. >> bret: carl, thank you. president obama switching things up a bit. for the final push. chief white house correspondent ed henry is with the president in las vegas. >> wardrobe change for president obama. flashing a bomber jacket from air force one to remind even he is still commander-in-chief for now. and while aides are also promising a change in message, with a new more positive tone in his final case -- >> our fight goes on because we know this nation cannot succeed. without a growing, thying middle class. >> he is still going negative on romney with the campaign today charging the republican would be rubber stamp for the right wing. >> he is saying he is the candidate of change. well, let me tell you, wisconsin, we know what change looks like. governor is all for ensuring change. giving more power back to the biggest banks isn't
in this country. obama gives greece beaches, but we have not had a true leader. we have had a politician in the office, a campaigner and chief. now we need a commander in chief. lou: angela is looking. [laughter] >> i love and love. i think those are aspirational words. unfortunately he is going to be proven wrong on tuesday night. i don't see very many paths to victory. we talk about the polls, but i don't see him winning in ohio, and i don't see him carrying enough of this is to be elected. >> if he does not win ohio, he could take wisconsin, nev., and colorado. >> absolutely. lou: the unemployment rate today was supposed to be a big number for the presidents, for governor romney. it turns out to be really neither. >> it was not a game ginger today. and certainly with what was going on this week, with sandy, with christie and romney having that and greenberg's -- blumbergs endorsements, slightly diminishing what happened. at the end of the day the economy is moving slowly in the right direction. the question will be on tuesday, quickly enough? >> you have had the unemployment rate actu
has been all over the country for obama. he's lost his voice he's working so hard. here he was in florida today. let's take a look. five stops down there. >> what president obama is saying, look at me, i'm always willing to work with republicans, i work with governor christie in new jersey on sandy. i tried to work with him on the budget. i tried to work with him on health care. and what they say is we'll work with the democrats if you put us in charge. now, that's the message, and you just have to decide whether you think that's a good message. >> there's bill out there. getting all the attention, but it's great. >> there is no better surrogate for anybody than bill clinton. he's very popular in florida. i'll tell what you else, bloomberg, he might as well also be the mayor of broward county. there are so many new yorkers who are dual residents. >> they still read "the new york post" because they think it's liberal. >> they still read "the new york post." florida has 22% independents, people who listen to bloomberg and clinton, and that fema thing i think is also going to
obama crisscrossing the country from colorado to new hampshire over the next two days. that includes two separate trips to ohio. mitt romney has most of those states on his itinerary as well, but he's also adding pennsylvania to his list. last hour, we brought you live coverage of his stop in new hampshire. now, here is the national picture. and it couldn't be closer. our poll shows 47% each. president obama will soon be on his way to mentor ohio to campaign in the cleveland suburb, but before we take you there, listen to the president slam mitt romney over an ad his campaign is running in ohio. >> look, i understand governor romney has had a tough time here in ohio because he was against saving the auto industry. and it's hard to run away from a position when you're on videotape saying let detroit go bankrupt. but you've got to own what you say. this isn't a game. these are people's jobs at stake. these are people's lives. you don't scare hard working americans just to scare up some votes. that's not what being president's all about. >> the president was responding to this romney ad tha
would lose 51%/49%. you go around the country. lots of states obama is at 48%, sometimes 49%, and james carville always said, you never get, if you're the incumbent, you never get a break. >> let's look at the closing arguments from president obama. he was in new hampshire yesterday taking aim at romney's record in massachusetts. >> once he took office, he pushed through a tax cut that overwhelmingly benefited 278 of the wealthiest families in the state, and then he raised taxes and fees on middle-class families. to the tune of $750 million. does that sound familiar to you? >> his argument of course that's exactly what governor romney is going to do if he's president. >> wait a second, the fact is barack obama would trade job creation of romney as governor in a heartbeat. he would trade massachusetts under romney in a heartbeat. romney worked with a democratic legislature. you look at romney's record, it makes obama's presidency look pretty thin. the longest period of high unemployment in american history since the great depression. every person who buys gasoline today is paying $2 a ga
on this planet is bill clinton. the former president has been all over the country for obama. he's lost his voice he's working so hard. here he was in florida today. let's take a look. five stops down there. >> what president obama is saying, look at me, i'm always willing to work with republicans, i work with governor christie in new jersey on sandy. i tried to work with him on the budget. i tried to work with him on health care. and what they say is we'll work with the democrats if you put us in charge. now, that's the message, and you just have to decide whether you think that's a good message. >> there's bill out there. getting all the attention, but it's great. >> he's very popular in florida. i'll tell what you else, bloomberg, he might as well also be the mayor of broward county. there are so many new yorkers who are dual residents. >> they still read "the new york post" because they think it's liberal. >> they still read "the new york post." florida has 22% independents, people who listen to bloomberg and clinton, and that fema thing i think is also going to hurt romney. >> when she was d
away is that obama should be saying and touting what he's done for our country. because people don't understand that in the very first -- wow -- first few months, literally, even while he was trying to repair the bush-cheney era screwups, the bottom line is he and his whole administration went throughout this country, from president obama to dr. chew, the head of d.o.e., to the heads of commerce, you name it, they all spread out across the country, talking to manufacturers in the united states in a wide variety of industries, literally, virtually every industrial sector. but the bottom line is he went, and they said, look, what can we, the government, do to assist you in being the best you can be? what can we do to make you hire more people, not just for today and tomorrow, but the next three, five, 10, 20 years? host: b.j. in gilbert, arizona, thanks for the call. we're going to take a look at some more items on facebook, facebook.com/cspan. greg writes -- host: also in social media, we've got joseph ramirez, who sends in this tweet -- host: we continue looking at your optimism or
and a obama 2008 supporter. >> it was something different for the country, something that hadn't happened before, with a black president. so i got caught up in that a little bit. but i think he's a disappointment. >> you don't like what you got but you're not sold on the alternative? >> absolutely not. at this point i don't know who i'm going to vote for. >> reporter: tense final days. in a place long known for historic battle fields. >> so close like almost all the battleground what happens in the end what happens on the ground. both parties say they've got a much better ground operation than 2008. the republicans say they've knocked on more than a million doors and they say their early voting numbers are improved. the democrats say no way. they will win virginia again because of this 60 plus offices statewide, latino strags up 19%. and under 60% under the age of 30. the democrats hope will put them over the top. romney needs it. the president would like to keep it. >> we're hearing so many of these reports there could be recounts like in 2000. one of candidates could win the popular vot
president obama is a battle for this country's freedom. at a rally with mitt romney in florida today, they had that state's former republican governor, jeb bush, talking about president obama as a failure, his failure to bring this country together. at the same event, we had a republican state congressman tell parents that they should threaten to take halloween candy away from any children of obama supporters that they know tonight. he suggested it. i think the idea was he said that obama is a redistributionist, and so you can scare kids and their obama-supporting parents about redistribution if you steal the kids' candy. that was the tenor of the romney campaign today. even as they told the press corps that they were going to be very respectful and nonpartisan and refrain from attacking the president today. it was just a remarkable, remarkable day. a remarkable decision. i mean, president obama is expected to restart his campaign schedule tomorrow. but mr. romney did not want to wait for that. he started his campaign events today. i'm sorry, are you stuck doing something else? i'll
is just a rehash the policies that led to the country's economic crisis and mr. obama heads to the all important state of ohio later tod today. and for his part, mitt romney was in virginia at several campaign stops. he criticized the president for not doing enough to help businesses. also romney said the nation needs a president who understands business better. romney's aides are conceding that the storm's slowed some of his momentum but insist their internal polls show him ahead in some of those toss-up states. romney visits wisconsin and also ohio today. >>> and from the lighter side of politics, vice president biden went on david letterman's show last night to read his top ten list. >> ah,
. the final sprint to find out who'll run the country for the next four years. president obama surveyed the damage on a 60-mile stredge of the jersey shore. >> we are here for you. we will not forget. we will follow up to make sure you get all the help you need until you rebuild. >> in such a tight race, romney couldn't afford to lose another day on the campaign trail, stopping in florida, a must-win state for hip. romney set aside his attacks and took a more subdued tone. the president gets back on track today with stops in wisconsin, nevada and colorado. >> romney will be close to roanoke this morning. 19 million people have voted so far. it appears there have been more early republican votes in colorado. john gonzales, abc 7 news. >> thanks so much, john. it is 4:37 now. we're looking at 45 degrees. >> we're hearing from the mother of anne local teenager who was killed while walking to school. what she is >> as we have shown you over the past few days, many local residents dealing with property damage from sandy. >> what is covered by insurance and wh
countries. a third preferred obama and 9% favored romney. that's 50 to 9. that's a difference of a lot. the prince was obama's strongest supporters fold by australians and his fellow kenyans. pakistan gave a slight edge to the mitster. nickelodeon said the president received 65% of the kids pick the president on-line vote. meanwhile for the latest on national and swing state polls let's go to hmc. >> that is my kind of happy meal, imogen. >> very very much, that was a nice, lovely flattering -- >> you are child like and you are european. >> i don't think are you supposed to call british people european. >> no, you are sometimes. >> i don't think you guys like it. >> sometimes. carry on, greg. >> no surprise that the europeans would favor obama. he is their cup of tea, isn't he? did you see how i said that? cup of tea because he is british? that's my improve class. >> here is the thing. foreigners don't have to live with obama all the time. americans loved blair way more than we loved blair in the uk. however, and i know you will agree with me, but there is something about obama a man c
, it's going to be okay, right? he's going to win. >> well, i live in the heart of obama country. i live on the upper west side of manhattan. >> and they're calm. >> no, they're not. not particularly calm, but it's because they believe this is a really important election. they think mitt romney would be a disaster for the country. so yeah, i think there's -- they still have confidence in the president, but they're worried that it's as close as it is this close to the election. >> i think there may be a shock, mika, that it's kind of like you, the first time it hits you after the first debate that mitt romney could actually win this thing. it was actually pretty shocking to you. >> shocking. we've got to go to a break, but now you have this massive storm coming. and who knows what will be left in its wake. and that could change everything. so adding to the uncertainty now, the potential natural disaster. our conversation with senior white house adviser valerie jarrett is ahead. also, connecticut -- >> it was great. >> that was fun. we had a very good time in new hampshire. >> you kno
on their targeting it, trying to portray president obama as someone who will hurt the coal country because of its emphasis and aide to alternative energy, solar and other things. the energy issue has had little bubble here in ohio, perhaps more than some of the other areas because of the coal, we also have the natural gas, for lacking is a big issue as a backdrop and the state. i think people are primed to talk about energy. host: talk to us about the mechanics of voting. early voting allowed in ohio. and the potential for three counts and when that kicks in. guest: ohio has early voting, and has early voting by two methods. we have this no-fault absentee ballot, you do not need a reason, you cannot aldo and an order -- all the campaigns are sending this to get a vote by mail application.and we have it, which has been much more controversial. if you are looking for a third issue in ohio, it has been over the voting rolls. there have been battles. obama is campaign -- obama's campaign sued the secretary of state on the grounds that have been limited in-person voting for veterans only, leading up t
to michelle obama, the most popular democrat in the country. nothing beats having a former president to affirm you. especially a guy like bill clinton. people believe him on the economy. >> why is he doing it? >> you know, i think part of it is that his legacy is in a sense tied to barack obama's. because a lot of what he's saying is let's go back to the clinton rates on taxes. there's an affirmation of him in barack obama getting re-elected. and of course they did bring their two political power house families together with the hiring of hillary clinton into the cabinet of barack obama. if you want to take the most cynical view of it, if hillary clinton wants to run in 2016, what better way to set that up. >> we've got some huge loyalty markers that are going to be able to called in on this deal. >> absolutely. >> i think president clinton not only shas he done the job for president obama, but the work that he's doing for, on the down-ballot is just amazing. do you think he can swing some races? >> i think absolutely. if you look at -- i'm seeing popping into my inbox, smaller candidates like
't think that's outrageous. >> is america a more or less racist country since barack obama became president? >> i think it's not a racist country. as i say in the book, i think there are more child molesters than genuine racists in america. >> you actually believe that? >> i can save you a lot of time. anything i say, i actually believe. yes. and i think i marshal a fair amount of evidence to demonstrate that. i think more the problem is the accusations of racism and that does drive the races apart because you have white people walking on egg shells, terrified they are going to say some word that's going to be deemed, you know, an incipient klan sentiment and that's why the crux of my book is the turning point of the o.j. verdict when i think white america saw black people cheering the acquittal of an obviously guilty black celebrity and said that's it, the white guilt bank is shut down. not only did that help race relations, it specifically helped black people as republican policies that had been pushed for years but demagogued as racist, law and order, welfare reform, were actually able t
newspaper in the country endorsed obama last week, they did it because of romney's economic pitch. why do they see it different than the rest of the country? >> this latest poll shows that 73% of latinos trust obama and the democrats to improve the economic situation. so the economy is the number one concern for latinos, and it has been for a long part of this campaign. they just do not buy the smaller government argument, and we know this from years of polling. latinos in general prefer a more active government, especially when it comes to health care, especially in terms of medicaid. so here latinos are not voting for the democrats for that one single issue for immigration. it's he economically driven like it is for the rest of lakt ra electorate. >> you talked about the battleground states. the president won the hispanic vote by about 2:1 in 2008. >> in florida its going to be really interesting to see bought of the diversity of the latino population there. it's not just the cuban base in south florida. since 2000 there's a booming population of puerto ricans in south florida. they're
in colorado ohio romney told supporters president obama is not the man to lead the country for another four years years. >> you see he's reelected you're going to have the status quo. he calls it forward, i call it forewarned. >> romney is off to florida while ryan continues to campaign in ohio. >> it's always america is in decline, america is not in decline, you're in denial. >> reporter: as for the democrats, vice president joe biden hit the trail in ohio, president obama spent the day in washington, d.c. >>> and coming up in eight minutes we sit down with a group of northern california voters, what's on their minds as they pick a president and help shape the future of the nation. >>> more bad news tonight for hockey fans what we've learned about plans for a full nhl season. the giants in detroit later in sports what ryan vogelsan had to say about starting tomorrow in game three. >> i'm going to have the forecast for game three, i think you're going to be surprised on how cool the temperatures are going to be and of course we have the bay area weekend, see you back here in a few minutes,
their hands for romney, three for obama and one undecided. >> to me that's what makes this country. >> reporter: a country that allows its people to vote for its leader. a country where every vote counts for every candidate. >> reporter: are you going to give romney the chance? >> i can't give him a chance. >> reporter: whether it's a swing state, a red state or a blue state the obama-romney debate is cooking in diners like this one across america. >> so if you kill business what kind of government do you have? you have a broke government. >> i know these guys keep saying mitt romney is a businessman but i don't think that he's a small businessman. >> reporter: and as this conversation goes the clock ticks and the final count down to election day is under way. mike mibach, ktvu news. >>> employees at the san francisco -- workers would turn off air-conditioning in clean rooms at night even though they were supposed to be climate controlled. so far 338 people have gotten sick from the outbreak and 25 have died. >>> in a little bit of fog is showing up at the coast tonight it's just g
